I like to think I can see the beauty in everything, but combine that with a fear of failure and it becomes very difficult to paint a foreground over a pleasing background. I have so many prepared surfaces that I love as they are. Perhaps 2017 can be a year of loosening...

Wow, how time flies! Well, Christmas is over, and all my Christmas crafts are packed away again. I have so many projects waiting for a spare moment (or month) that's it's rather exciting! 

Matt got me a lovely lot of presents this year (we're very much in the lots-of-li...

After a week of making earrings, I've packed all my beads away and decided to have a go at using an antique and sadly past its best quilt. It's heavily moth-eaten, but I really like the effect, especially on the border where the background ink was apparently tastier th...

I took the afternoon off to go and wander round the Giacometti and Cartier-Bresson exhibitions at The Sainsbury Centre. The guided tour of Giacometti's work and that of his contemporaries was excellent. I now have *too many* ideas!

This is one of my all-time favourite p...

Current WiP is a typography piece inspired by Jasper Johns but incorporating synaesthesia. I must be out of practice though because half the alphabet currently feels grey... 
I have a feeling this one might take me a while!

Blues and greens are strongest for me, but I'm...
